Fatfree Vegan Recipes Vegetarian Party Recipes Parties are opportunities to splurge and have a good time. When we have a group of buddies visiting, serve these recipes with chips, raw vegetables, and a fine selection of local microbrew beers. Many of these dishes aren't vegan by a long shot; but then, this is party material. I often make a small vegan portion of the seven-layer dip for guests who won't tolerate dairy.

Caramelized Chicken with Jalapeno Cream Want to know how to make one heck of a delicious chicken dish? Good. Because I was going to tell you anyway. First up. Chop up some jalapenos and other good stuff. Caramelize some chicken. Then that whole jalapeno saute thing? Dump that sauce all over the CARAMELIZED chicken. Mmmm. Comfort food at it’s finest! Isn’t that what life is all about? And don’t worry about this meal being super spicy because frankly – it’s not. Caramelized Chicken with Jalapeno Cream serves 4 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper 2 tablespoons canola oil 2 jalapenos, seeded and chopped 1 shallot, sliced 2 garlic cloves, minced 2 tablespoons butter 1 tablespoon flour (any kind will do, I used whole wheat) 1/4 cup low-fat or skim milk 1 12-ounce can fat-free evaporated milk 2 tablespoons finely grated parmesan cheese Add chopped jalapenos, shallots and garlic to a food processor and pulse until very finely chopped (not pureed).

Cruftbox When Intelligentsia Coffee opened in Pasadena recently, I was intrigued the lasagna cupcakes they served. The cupcakes are made by Heirloom LA, a catering business. About the size of a muffin, a single lasagna cupcake was a delicious meal. After seeing how much my daughter enjoyed them (she ate my entire cupcake and I had to order a second one), I decided I had to try making them at home. After a bit of research, here is my method. The ingredients are fairly simple. Spray or wipe the cupcake tin with olive oil for prevent sticking and add a little flavor. Once you filled in the first layer, gently press another wrapper in, forming another cup. Once you've placed the second wrapper, repeat the filling as you see fit. A bit of Mozzarella cheese on top of it all. I baked them for 20 minutes at 375° F and then come out perfectly browned. If you remembered to use olive oil, they should slide out easily with top crispy and the wrapper moist and tender. The small cupcake size works well for us.
